Excellent job, Mick. That is one great looking deer. I call them the "typical" Michigan 8pt. We see them often and it is a great blessing when we connect on one.

Great season this year. I was able to shoot a six point in Baldwin on state land in the middle of October and shot this 9 point this morning.

I was hunting a spot I have near my home that has no pressure, I only hunt it if the wind is right and my stand is just out side a bedding area with alot of travel. Got in my stand and bumped a deer as I got to it, waited ofr daylight and about 7:05 a button buck approaches my stand by himself just milling aroud, I usually see him with his mom and sister, last week he came 20 yards from my stand and bedded down in the evening I figure his mom and sister are being harassed by bucks so he waits to meet back with them here, well yesterday he is near my stand and I hear a buck grunting and I see a buck going past me to a white oak the feed under often, he spots the button buck and comes in to check him out and the buck gets about 15 yards broad side standing there but the button buck is facing me and as soon as the little one turns his head I hit anchor and double lung the buck. The arrow passes through and sticks in the ground. He ran about 40 yards or so, I didnt see him go down so I backed out for 2 hrs and returned for a easy track. I used my 46# longbow with gt3555 arrows and a STOS broadhead 185 gr w/insert. I've shot 4 bucks with this bow. The deer weight was 149# dressed.

Congrats guys ! good to see nice deer falling to trad bows. It has inspired me to take the longbow back in the woods, couple of you know I had a tough season two yrs ago. 3-misses, a shoulder hit and a high hit. Both hit deer were later taken during the gun season, no harm no foul. Just left my confidence shaken up.
Took the wheels out last season and start of this one, 6 shots 6-deer in the freezer. Not sure why the shot sequence was so interupted before but all seems to be back on track. Shooting very well w Tanjavur, ready to to get after them again. Super busy in the shop now [might be why I was off b4 alot of stress going full time w own business] I'm free to hunt sun,mon,+tues a.m, Woodsman sharpened and ready, Thanks again for sharing your success and stories, Todd

.....aaaaahhhhhhh........and its fairly mild weather wise.

EHD made for yet another uneventful deer season around me for several miles east and west. Truth is? I dont mind it. I find the older I get the less the deer matter in the scenario. I can wait, I have time.

I had some luck up north during rifle season but have been striking out with the bow.

I sat again tonight with no luck out in Ravenna in Muskegon county. They didn't feel the pain of the ehd much last year but were the only county I've heard of this year with any sizeable dieoff. I'm determined to kill a deer out there yet this year out of fear of losing the property as a hunting spot. The property owner farms the property and simply put, wants to see blood. If I strike out this year it will be 2 years in a row and I wouldn't blame him if he wanted to throw another hunter out there.

Hunted Saturday and Sunday. Saturday put kill shot on a six point that was freshly wounded (back leg shot off). A father and son stopped when we were getting to the truck asking if we had seen a wounded deer that his son had shot. Took him to the deer and helped them tag and load it up. Young mans second deer ever. He quickly realized he didn't kill that deer but was very excited and appreciateive all the same. Good stuff.
Yesterday had four doe come in right at dark nothing in the morning.
Felt good being out there!!

Many of my familiar areas have a very poor deer population, so hunting those areas for a late season doe is out of the question.

Firearms season was hard on an already stressed population...so I guess all I can do is NOT hunt those spots.

I was going to try a new spot this morning, but got called in to work last night...the property owner says you gotta be in position EARLY or we will spook them out...we will see.
